Weekend Rugby Report
A five try to two win against a strong Birkenhead outfit. Lytham however were up to the job, with some outstanding defence to the fore and superb handling skills in attack. Two tries come from wing Noblett; the first set up by some outstanding handling by prop Green. Mr McIntyre said that he reminded him of a young JJ Williams. Godfrey was, as always, strong in attack, but like skipper Morris, was so good at the turnover ref Mr Hayden had to refer to his Nigel Owens obscure penalty almanac to give the away side some ball.
Godfrey added to his try tally with a fine score, as did Murray with a typical barn storming run. Debutants Gilbey and Kilgour enjoyed fine performances and Kilgour sealed his with a great score.
Overall this was a another strong performance by the home side with several players, McIntyre, Simpson Lutz and Tavoni having their best performances of the season so far. With a tough away fixture next Saturday in Crosby the side will hopefully repeat this standard of play and continue their winning ways
A close fought battle against Birkenhead School, sees the AKS U14s continue to build their season with another good win. With tries from Woodman, Croasdale and Davies adding the extra points with his boot, AKS ran out 31-24 winners. The Birkenhead coach, praised a number of the AKS players, however named Davies Man of the Match, with an impressive display or game management, decision making and execution of skills.
